The pleasure of an all-original 1963 Jaguar XKE with Jay Leno


Jay Leno and his garage gang shoot so many videos it can be hard to keep up, but after watching these for several years I think I can tell when something drives in that he's particularly enthused about. This 1963 Jaguar XKE coupe that Leno bought from its original owner scratches an itch he's clearly had for years, and Leno provides a master class in the difference between restoration and preservation, and what a classic is for. When someone can get this excited about two-bladed fans and gas filler neck corrosion, you know they're an elite breed of enthusiast.
